Question about Sony KV-32XBR48 32" TV

1 Answer

Flashing, slow startup, and finally, just snow

It all started when: one day the tv made a quick (less than 1 sec.) screetching sound and shut off. It turned back on ok. As time went by though, it took longer and longer to show a picture and the picture started blinking on and off. Just once in awhile at first, then sometimes twice, untill after about 2-3 weeks it got to where it would blink on and off almost constantly. One day it made the same unusual sound and shut off again. I thought that it must have finally died but turned on the power again. To my surprise it was working again (no blinking/ picture returned). I knew this probably be short lived. Fast forward- all the same symptoms returned after about 3 months until the present very long turn on with the finall screen being just solid snow/ full screen. Any ideas? Anyone love a mystery to solve? Anyone have a cheap, easy, God-please-don't-make-me-cough-up-the-money-for-a-flatscreen-right-now solution? Thanks soooo much for any info.

Re: flashing, slow startup, and finally, just snow

Try resoldering the pcb, especially the heat producing components on the pcb, do it with the crt base card too, I guess this will fix this up. Good luck.

Stand by timer shuts tv off after 30 sec sony tv

Sounds more like it's been set to do that. Use the following to shut off the timer mode. It's possible that the set is set to the wrong time of day but that is unlikely. You can shut off the timer mode using the on screen menu. Follow the instructions below.

Using the Timer Menu
Current Time Set your TV to the current day and time. Press to open the Current
Time menu:
1 Use the F or f buttons to enter the correct day and time, then press
2 Press to exit the menu.
Timer 1 and
Timer 2
Use the timers to program your TV to turn on and off by day, time,
duration, and channel. The timer duration is a maximum of six hours.
When the channel is fixed, it is not necessary to set the channel.
1 Use the F or f buttons to highlight Timer 1 or Timer 2, then press
2 Use the F or f buttons to enter the desired day, start time, duration,
and channel, then press . The timer status should be On when the
Timer has been set, and the timer light on the front panel of the TV
should be on.
3 Press to exit the menu.
? When you perform Auto Program, Timer 1 and Timer 2 settings will be cleared. Also, in the event of
any loss of power, Current Time, Timer 1, and Timer 2 settings will be cleared

The picture went from clear to snow, but the sound remained clea

Flyback is going out in this unit and would cost $120 for a new flyback if I were to repair it for you. So you have two choices have it repaired on recycle it! The repair these days on TUBE tv's are not very cheap because of having to find parts for them. Rulds2008

Kv 32hs420 7 slow blinks form the led light sounds comes on but no picture shuts it self down then give me 7 fast blinks hhhhhheeeeelllppppp

The slow blinks are normal at startup. The quick seven blinks indicate that a problem was detected and the set is shutdown to prevent further damage. I'll look up your model later today and post the probable defective parts. Are you planning on attempting the repair yourself?

Pic freezes, goes dark w/sound then back on

By what you have said your color wheel can cause this when it stops running .Pull back off and watch what is happening when you turn set on.
